Women are Better at Almost Everything…

So, I guess I will have to give up my hopes for an equal unless I want to date a woman…


I think I have decided that Friday will be my official “discuss an article day.” Today I want to talk about this one: Why women really are better at almost everything: Q & A with author Dan Abrams. My friend Dave sent it to me. I can’t tell if he is trying to cheer me up or convince me to give up on love. Either way, I think I might buy this book — and give it to my dad who is convinced that there is a massive media conspiracy that is hell-bent on making men look like the weaker sex.

Of course, there may be such a conspiracy out there. But maybe…(GASP)…they are telling the truth.


Me on the other hand, I think I still have hope and I am still holding out for a man who considers me his equal and vice versa.

    I hadn’t heard of that book. Must check it out. Don’t give up hope on finding your equal. they are out there. They are probably just distracted right now with walking their dogs or doing their taxes.

      Thanks, Renee. I always appreciate your optimism and your perspective. And I don’t want you all to think that I have given up all hope in this area — or that I’m obsessed with it for that matter. I just keep getting interesting tidbits worth sharing at the blog level.

    We still rule at engineering, which I think is all that matters at this point. 😉

    I have to agree with your dad. Being as that the media is overpopulated with liberals. What your dad is talking about is called Misandry. This is reverse sexism by women against men. You even see it in the commercials where the man is portrayed as a hapless boob has once again gotten himself and/or his family into trouble again and the “heroic” woman swoops in to save the day, all the while tossing off condascending and disrespectful comments to the no good man.

    As long as you feel that women are better at almost everything, you are doomed to be manless. Men need respect even more than they need sex and you know how they are about sex. If you really want a man, you need to find things to respect about him and tell him, otherwise you may as well start looking for women.

      You are SO FREAKING bossy. “You need” to do this and “you need” to do that. Do you talk to everyone like this or do you just write to people like this? And do you really think ANY person will respond favorably or take the advice of some who is telling them they are doomed? I’m not a patient of yours and when I write these posts it is not me personally asking you to boss me around and tell me that I am doomed. Or to project negative ideas on me.


      But this guy did. It’s full of proof according to the article — did you even bother to read that article? And hey, what if it’s true? And what if what is happening in the media is just a reflection of what is happening in real life? Which came first? The hapless man? Or the commercial about him?

      And as far as respect if concerned, you seem to be suggesting that it is something I should just do. Just respect men. But what if the men I know are doing things to undermine my respect? What if I can’t find something to respect about them? What if they don’t deserve respect? What if THEY need to do better if they want to be respected?
